The second annual Bartitsu School of Arms and Physical Culture conference/seminar event will take place at the Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts studio in Chicago, IL, USA between September 8-9, 2012.

The premise of the School of Arms is to preserve and extend the cross-training experiments begun by E.W. Barton-Wright at the original Bartitsu School of Arms in London.

Participants are invited to join a field trip and guided tour of the Hegeler Carus mansion and historic gymnasium in LaSalle, IL on the afternoon of Friday, September 7. Saturday the 8th will include a full day of Bartitsu cross-training instruction followed by dinner, discussions and socialising, and Sunday the 9th will include a further day of training with fellow enthusiasts, finishing with a fun and challenging antagonisticathlon combat obstacle course event, presentation of participation certificates, etc.
